4.28/5 rDev +28.5%
appearance; reddish amber with a off white head. Maintains head quite well if poured properly.
smell; mild pumpkin spice and toasty pumkin. A bit of old bay like spice odor too.
taste; very gentle spice and mild pumpkin. Dull malt flavors in the aftertaste. Well balanced of subtle flavors that blend to make a very tasty brew.
mouthfeel; not at all thick but has creamy substance. Goes down smooth, carbonation is light.
drinkability; very smooth and light but not without flavor. Demands session drinking for sure.
This was a pretty good pumpkin beer compared to others I've had, which tasted like cinnamon soda.

A - clear amber with a soft, bubbly, white head that has good retention
S - pumkin, caramel, faint cinnamon
T - pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, faint bready malt
M - medium bodied, well carbonated
This is probably the most balanced pumpkin ale I've had to date. The pumpkin is forward and foremost in the flavor with the spices taking a balanced, supporting role. This is delicious and incredibly drinkable. It's definitely worth checking out.

I have been searching for the perfect pumpkin ale for over 15 years. This one comes the closest so far. The deep orange color and burnt pumpkin aroma blew me away. Taste is right on with very little spice, sweetness or hops; its all toasted pumpkin. The reality is that pumpkin has a very mild flavor, and this is as close as it gets. Other pumpkin ales seem to try to achieve a pumpkin pie flavor in a beer by adding to much spices. To me this ale strives to complement pumpkin pie instead of mimicry. Even 15 minutes later I can still taste the burnt pumpkin. With the low ABV I could definitely drink a six pack in one session. I'll be looking forward to Punk'n Ale returning next year.

A: Pours an opaque mahogany with a thin mocha head.
S: Pumpkin, toasty notes, malt, and a bit of mild fruit in the nose.
T: Nice toasty pumpkin, malts, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.
M: Medium bodied and smooth.
O: If you like the style, I recommend it. It's a very good beer to me, but I'm a fan of the style, especially when the flavor of pumpkin and spices are well represented. Also, the toasty malty notes make a great addition.

D-Low carbonation, excellent taste. I will drink the whole six pack and want some more.
Overall a pretty good Pumpkin Ale offering. Not sure why the ratings are so low, but I really enjoyed it.

Pumpkin-orange in color. Good clarity. Weakish head retreats to a ring around the glass but adds some attractive lace patches.
Mild grainy aroma, herbal hop, subtle pumpkin.
Malty biscuit flavor, light and buttery. Hint of pumpkin. Hop flavor of herbs, grass and spinach leaves. Well balanced and I really enjoy how the pumpkin flavor is not overpowering.
Light bodied, well carbonated. Crisp, clean finish.
I actually like this beer quite a bit. It doesn't claim to be anything it's not. It's a sessionable ale with pumpkin added. Descent flavor and well balanced.

This a very good take on a pumpkin ale when the calender flips from September to October. The appearance is like everyone else has said is a dark copper color where the head dissipates quickly. The smell is quite pleasant. I caught a distinct smell of pumpkin with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. The taste of this one is one of the better pumpkin beers I have had in a long time. It does have a sweeter taste than most from the spices incorporated through out the brewing process. This is definitely not a sour ale. The beer does feel smooth and the bitters do not really come out hence 10 IBUs. I personally like beers with higher IBUs, but for a good seasonal change of pace beer this is a good one to try.
